Asus P6X58D-E Marvell Controller - Page 2

post #11 of 13
The Marvell 9128 controller basically on all X58 boards except a rare few is really buggy with RAID. Stick with the native Intel ports.

EDIT: It's also really buggy in general and the speed gain is either negligible or negative from the few places I have read.

From the horses mouth... "The Marvell® 88SE91xx host controllers offer cost-effective solution of connecting Serial ATA (SATA) or Parallel ATA (PATA) peripherals to a PCI Express (PCIe) 2.0 host. Each host controller supports one or more 6 Gb/s SATA and one 133 MB/s PATA peripheral interface ports and a one-lane 5.0 Gb/s PCIe host interface."

I'm not trying to set up raid, I just want to get my SSD running on the stupid thing since it's 6GBps.

I wouldn't bother. You will get far better speeds with the 3GB/s controller than you will with the 6GB/s one. It's still a worthy upgrade on the ICH10R controller, though, in my opinion.

Read this thread for some useful info on how the performance differs in R0 SSD setups: http://forums.tweaktown.com/storage-...-raid-ssd.html
